If you want to be successful, then Northeastern University is the right place for you. Northeastern offers great internship and co-op opportunities, which help guide students through real-world job experience. Co-op gave me a chance to get relevant work experience while pursuing a master’s degree.

Progressed to a degree in Business at Northeastern University
 

My pathway program helped me understand what was going to be expected of me at an American university, and what I had to expect from myself. I wasn’t learning just to get a good grade; I was learning for myself and for the experience, which in my opinion is the most valuable part about being in the US.

I advise new students to be confident and enjoy themselves. The programs here are really good – they teach you a lot of new things, and allow you to explore Boston. Studying with Kaplan at Northeastern is especially beneficial for getting ahead in life.
